Introduction to HLanData: harmonizing Land Use and Land Cover information through Europe

The HLANDATA project aims to demonstrate the feasible European level harmonization of the Land Use and Land Cover datasets taking into account both the data categorization and the data models, for any of their possible uses and users, through the development of user oriented value-added services.

The Land Use is referred to the categorization of the territory based on its current and future planned socio economic purpose. Land Cover is referred to the physical, chemical, ecological or biological categorization of the earth surface. Land Use and Land Cover are amongst the most important geographic information themes today because they are essential for many applications areas, such as: Environmental Impact Evaluation, GMES applications, calculations on CO2 drains, irrigation land’s evolution and evaluation-projection on water consumption, study on habitats and ecosystems, calculations on erosive states, study and evaluation of town-planning growth models, etc.

Unfortunately, despite the initiatives which have already been carried out and others that are being carried out at present moment, there is no valid data harmonization model for the Land Cover and Land Use datasets, taking into account both the data categorization and the data model and the end users’ specificities, which could be valid for all the application areas and at a European level.

The HLANDATA project aims at making a significant step forward in overcoming the aforementioned barrier, fostering the use of the Land Use and Land Cover geographic data at a European level, through the creation of value-added European services.

In order to achieve this objective, newly developed web services will be used for the implementation of 3 pilot projects in 3 different application areas, which will be used to validate the harmonization proposal made:

• PILOT 1: Land Use- Land Cover Data Analysis System for intermediate-level users

• PILOT 2: Harmonized and Interoperable Land Information Systems

• PILOT 3: Stratification of waste dumps


Each of the pilot projects will result on a Land Use model for a specific application area.



HLANDATA will create value-added services for the spatial and temporal analysis in the different pilots, integrating open source developments and own developed software.

Services freely accessible through the web will be developed, assessing the different existing solutions but also guaranteeing the use of standard services (Web Map Services – WMS, Web Processing Services – WCS, Web Features Services – WFS).

HLANDATA will provide access to the services of the developed pilots in the context of the project through a Geo-gateway which will put together the project information with the access to its achieved results.

Target Users

Target users of the proposed services are Land Use/Land Cover information users. Among them, the ones more directly addressed in the project are the intermediate-level users, defined as users needing functionalities such as the visualization of Land Cover / Land Use layers, the overlay of the own information to other sources, spatial and temporal analysis and downloads of the data in different formats. This mainly includes Technicians of the Public Administration at local, regional and national levels; services and networks Commonwealths; public entities from different sectors (urban land, forest and rural environments); private companies; Universities; cabinets and consulting enterprises for the Agronomical, Forest or Environmental Engineering; architects and other engineers.
